With us releasing the much requested Background Audio feature we got a lot of inquiries about what is safe to play on stream and what is not. While we will not block any audio that you choose to play on stream the destinations that you stream to (FB, Twitch, YT, etc.) all have their own guidelines regarding DMCA. This means your content is still be muted if the platform (ex. YouTube) finds an issue with your music
So where can you get music that is DMCA-safe? What are the songs you can play to avoid takedowns when you livestream?
2/ Cherne Beats
5/ Motion Array
Alternatively, you can use sites like Soundcloud or Bandcamp and reach out to the artists directly and ask for permission to use their audio.

We hope that this provides some guidance for you to help get your streams not only jamming but safe. As always any questions about Melon or the background audio can be directed to [email protected].
